About This Meeting

Leaders often ask what it takes to get more employees "thinking like an owner." The truth is, It takes more than just an ESOP. One challenge to engaging all employees as owners are the often invisible divides based on class and profession in our organizations: office and field, shop floor and customer service, sales and warehouse.

Participants in this webinar will learn how one employee-owned firm, Brinkman Construction Inc. of Colorado, is bridging these divides through training in business literacy, interpersonal skills and continuous improvement strategies
